Accordion Bookmaking Workshop: Watercolor

Make your own sketch book and learn watercolor techniques in this workshop led by artist Giulia Caruso. Giulia will guide the class with step by step demonstrations of each new technique!

Learning to sketch is like learning a new language: a form of perception and ability to communicate. Shapes and colors tell the story of a place and we will focus on the quickest, most efficient ways to transcribe these fleeting experiences.

Choosing the best tools when sketching on location is essential for scenarios where space and time are limited. We will learn how to use watercolor with a “water-brush” and how to mix it with pens and graphite.

We will make a Japanese style accordion sketchbook with watercolor paper, to be used for the field trip and life drawing session.

During this 3 day workshop you can expect to learn:

  • How to create a Japanese style accordion book

  • Drawing with a brush to quickly set an idea on the page

  • How to use shadows to reveal the poetry of a subject

  • Using “water-brushes” and how to modulate the diluition of watercolor

Cost: 90€* (including book making materials)
*includes 19% VAT

Water brushes will be available to buy.
